The Third RunWisborough a Great Success!

Sunday 13 May – For the third year, we were blessed with great weather, a host of enthusiastic runners, walkers, helpers and spectators creating a fantastic Wisborough Green atmosphere!  Over 500 runners completed the 10 and 5k races with 200 children completing the colour run.  We’re still totting up the numbers but expect to have raised £5,000 towards the new sports pavilion which is a fantastic result.

The 10k was won by Luke Burgess of Horsham Blue Star Harriers in a new course record time of 35:08 which is also a record time for a junior runner.  The 5k was won by Sandy McDougall of Haslemere Border AC in a time of 18:27 which smashed the ladies record.  Village runners put in some great times with Pete O’Connell leading the way with first place in the male V55 a great fourth place in the 5k followed by two fantastic times for junior runners Leon Kilford and Jacob Ball in 13th and 16th place respectively.

This year the race was started by Mrs M A Fleming, Deputy Head of Christ’s Hospital School our headline sponsor.  We would like to thank all our sponsors for their invaluable support especially Christ’s Hospital, Bluecoats Sports and Lynn Murray Solicitors.

Next year’s race is pencilled in for the 12 May and details will be available on our website in due course.  All results and the chance to buy photos of the day (just £3) are also on

Lastly, and most importantly, the race organisers would like to thank the 50+ villagers who helped out on the day, the support of residents along the route, everyone who ran and all those who came out and cheered.
